Really good book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Creating a Web Site: The Missing Manual (Missing Manuals) (Paperback)
I bought this book last year when a friend was building a website for me. I didn't want to be able to build it myself, just to follow what he was doing and learn a bit more about websites and the internet. But I actually think that I would have been able to build my own site with the guidance given in this book, it is so well written and takes you through step by step. And I have no IT knowledge, other than how to do the usual stuff of switching on, doing emails and using various Microsoft Office programmes.
One of the reviewers has criticised the book for the use of IT terminology but in fact everything is explained as you go along. There is an excellent index and HMTL glossary. I didn't even understand what HTML stood for when I opened the book and now I am sufficiently confident to do basic HTML stuff on my website. This has certainly given me enough knowledge to enable me to run my site without bothering my tecchie friend too often!
The best thing about the book is that it covers all aspects of creating a website, including SEO techniques to get traffic and using Google ads to generate a bit of income from the site. I regularly pick it up and re-read sections when I need to remind myself of something! Well worth the money!
